From the Rossland Miner, June 1900
There is a sociable cougar in the south belt. He calls occasionally at the Blue Bird claim and is remarkably tame and occasionally will let the people at the Blue Bird and the Red Eagle get quite close to him.
So far he has made no attempt to molest any one, and no one is the least alarmed when he puts in an appearance. On Sunday Mr. J.R. Cranston was near the Red Eagle when he heard the dog from the Blue Bird barking. He went into the woods and found that he was playing with a large coyote. The latter was of a gray color with yellow spots as large as a silver dollar.
The coyote made off as soon as Mr. Cranston approached. He seemed, however, to be on the friendliest terms with the dog.
June Speaker Series – Adrian Leslie
Wednesday, June 23 – 6:30 pm – OUTDOORS
Adrian, a biologist, will be on-site to discuss whitebark pine rehabilitation projects in ski areas. Ski areas have had devastating impacts on whitebark pines, which only grow at high elevations. Starting in September, RED Mountain Resort will participate in a whitebark pine restoration program happening across BC’s ski resorts.
